Salad can get a bad wrap. If you’ve ever thought ‘salad is boring’or ‘salad is tasteless’you aren’t the first to think that. BUT. Salad doesn’t have to be boring or tasteless. A simple and tasteful recipe where you can dress it up or dress it down for any occasion is easy, convenient, made to your taste and it's nutritious! A 2-step process is all that is required. See below!
Step 1: Fabulous Foundation
1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (unfiltered)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
½ a teaspoon of pink Himalayan or iodised salt
Stir all together and drizzle over whatever! I.e. A delicious pumpkin and pine nut salad OR dip a bit of your fresh baked wholemeal Vienna loaf in the dressing - YUM!
Step 2: Dress it up
The best part… add your combo of tastes!
Try adding ½ teaspoon of dried rosemary leaves?
Squeeze of lemon juice and ½ tsp of mixed herbs
Chilli for a bit of spice!
Fresh or dried parsley leaves.
Let it marinate for 1-2 minutes. Better, yet, leave it in the fridge over night!
So, why make your own – what’s in it for me?
Apple Cider Vinegar may aid digestion by increasing stomach acid. An acidic environment in the gut is helpful to break down the food we eat.
Olive oil has fabulous proprieties. One being omega-3 which is an anti-inflammatory!
Salt – brings out the flavour and can help aid persons with low blood pressure.
Herbs to for taste and extra nutrients – any work! My favourite are: rosemary, chilli, parsley, dill … for any occasion.
There literally are different flavours for every occasion. Leaving you knowing exactly what is in your dressing, nutritious and to your taste! Simply delicious!
